  • Made in Japan
  • Vintage: 1950's - 1960's
  • Details:  This is a beautiful footed serving plate, much like a compote.  It has a large decoration of fruits in the center and smaller pictures of fruit all around the border.  The showstopper part of this plate is the border, it is all brushed by hand in gold and gives it a spectacular finish!  It retains its original sticker on the bottom but it's totally faded, we're unable to read it.  The plate is stamped on the bottom:  "Original Napco China, Hand Painted, 1M2671".  It has a brass-tone metal pedestal.  Beautiful decor for your home, gorgeous on a buffet table, also makes a great gift.

National Potteries Corporation, (Napco), was founded in Bedford, Ohio, in 1938 by Irwin Garber, David Rein and Mr. Payner.  They originally produced their own porcelain and glass but after World War II, Napco started importing collectible ceramic novelty items from Japan.  Those items so loved and collected today include: ceramic planters, decorative glass, novelty figurines and their ever famous Head Vases.  This helped Napco grow very fast in the 50's and 60's.  However, during the 1960's Napco faced hard competition from Lefton, Enesco, as well as from one of their own, Irwin Garber.  Irwin left Napco to start International Art Ware Corp (Inarco), which also imported glass and ceramics from Japan, including the head vases that had been so popular for Napco.  Like most importers at the time, due to competition, Napco started importing from China as well.  In 1986, Napco purchased Inarco and moved the company headquarters to Jacksonville, Florida where they remain today. Napco used a wide array of marks-some transfer marks and some paper labels. The paper labels feature various wording, such as: “A Napco Collection,” “Napco originals by Giftware,” “National Potteries Co., Cleveland, OH, Made in Japan,” and “Napcoware”.  With over 70 years of industry history as a prolific distributor during the 20th century, they continue into the 21st century providing exclusively designed products with exceptional quality.
